security team. >> under fire for his past statements about israel and iran. hagel is now speaking out. told his hometown newspaper "lincoln journal star." the distersions about my record have been astounding. once voicing opposition to unilateral sanctions on iran, hagel says while he was "hanging out there in no man's land unable to respond to charges, falsehoods and indistortions, he admitted they took on a life of their own." he's arguing that there's "not one shred of evidence that i'm anti-israeli. nat one vote that matters that hurt israel." hagel defending his iran stance saying unilateral sanctions, "don't work and just isolate the united states." republican critics many who bitterly remember his split from the iraq war are focusing on iran and israel. >> he's an honorable man. he's had a record of distinguished service, but he's profoundly wrong on a number of the most important national security issues that face our country today. >> but this issue of israel and iran is something the white house is nervous about. they began a feverish lobbying effort talking to key leaders of key
agencies here in israel and we have talked to a few of them is that this particular research facility has been a facility that they know has been part of a chain of facilities that syria runs that have been trying to create unconventional weaponry. we are talking chemical weapons. however we are told this particular facility didn't have chemical weapons in it. however it was in a link. something that would help them move, for example, weaponry around. this facility we are hearing from intelligent sources was one in which very large missiles were made to be smaller so they could be transported. that is the key here. a lot of worry in israel that the weapons in syria are being transported across the border to lebanon into the hands of hezbollah which is a known enemy of israel. >> real quick here, sara. do we know if the syrians are threatening now to retaliate? >> they have given some inkling that it was unacceptable, b barbaric as they put it. we are not hearing the heightened language you often here targeted at israel. we heard it from iran. iran basically saying through their media that
into egypt, threaten israel. there were very important reasons why we were there, not just the state department, but other government agencies. whether or when we go back will depend upon the security situation. >> all of that and much more ahead. but first, on the heels of president obama blasting rush limbaugh and fox news, democratic senator mary landrieu taking a shot of her own at fox. >> i am not going to keep cutting the discretionary budget, which by the way, is not out of control, despite what you hear on fox news. >> so is this trend going to continue? what do they get out of it? former speaker of the house, newt gingrich is here. at least president obama and senator landrieu put the straw man up there, apparently, fox news is their straw man. >> they're very different arguments. mary landrieu's argument, with all due respect is nuts. the idea that discretionary spending's not too high, the idea that this government's not too big, the idea that the deficit isn't too large, this is not a fox news problem, this is a wash politician problem. i think they can try to find somebo
of israel has been lacking, and that he has not been tough enough on iran. they point to his comments, once describing apac, the leading pro-israel lobby, as the jewish lobby. and also to his lack support for unilateral sanctions against iran. but here at the white house, they're pointing to his support for sanctions from the u.s. as well as its allies, together, forming sanctions against iran. this is something president obama referenced today in the east room. >> he understands that america stands strongest when we stand with allies. and with friends. as a successful businessman, he also knows that even as we make tough fiscal choices, we have to do so wisely. and keep our military the strongest fighting force the world has ever known. maybe most importantly, chuck knows that war is not an obstructi obstruction. he understands that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that's something we only do when it's absolutely necessary. >> the president stressed hagel's experience as an enlisted soldier in vietnam. hagel would be the first secretary of defense to have bee
. and this isn't about israel's security any more than it's about ours. the right wants a hawk at defense for all occasions. someone with an itchy trigger fing mother has always got a country lind up to go to war with, iraq, afghanistan, iraq again, libya, syria, iran. sorry, the guy you lined up to be president would have picked a person you'd want as defense chief, a real genuine hawk, but mitt romney lost, didn't he? he lost. so keep firing off those anti-hagel columns and editorials, my right wing brothers, and don't worry, you won't get hurt. it's why they don't give you purple hearts for writing op-ed pieces like they did chuck hagel for being out there actually defending this country. let's start tonight with former nebraska senator bob kerrey and the atlantic's steve clemens. senator, it's always an honor to speak with you. the president today said chuck hagel is an american patriot when he announced the nomination of the former senator from your state to head the pentagon. let's take a listen. >> chuck hagel is the leader that our troops deserve. he is an american patriot. he enlisted in
the united states and israel and the senate or the congress than what you said. name one dumb thing we have been goaded in to do because of the pressure of the israeli or jewish lobby. >> i have already stated that i regret the term nlg. >> you said back then it makes us do dumb things. you can't name one senator intimidated. now give me one example of the dumb things we're pressured to do up here. >> we were talking in that interview about the middle east. about positions. about israel. >> now that exchange followed another faceoff earlier today with senator john mccain over the war in iraq. >> will you please answer the question? will you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since until nam? were you correct or incorrect? yes or no? >> my reference -- >> are you -- the question is, were you right or wrong? that's a pretty straightforward question. >> well -- >> i would like to answer whether you're right or wrong and then you're free to elaborate. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer on a lot
that drawn enron could cross as early as this year. israel's red line is based simply on the amount of uranium iran has enriched. iran's intentions remain a mystery but one thing is certain-- they keep getting better at enriching uranium. scott. >> pelley: david, thank you very much. iran will be one of the biggest challenges for chuck hagel if he is confirmed as the new secretary of defense. hagel had a rough day today at his senate confirmation hearing. the former republican senator's past statements about iran, israel, and iraq drew hostile questions, and here's wyatt andrews. >> reporter: republicans charge that in his 12 years as a senator, chuck hagel was too soft on iran and not supportive of israel. hagel was forced to retract one 2006 comment when he said the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here, meaning congress, a statement that drew questions from senator lindsey graham. >> give me an example of where we've been intimidated by the israeli jewish lobby to do something dumb. regarding the middle east, israel, or anywhere else. >> well, i can't give you an examp
plausible enemy which you would use f-16s and stanks israel. >> greta: who gets the money from this? who is making all the money from this purchase? >> i don't know whether they are surplus or corporations in america that are building them. i just don't know the answer to that. >> in either case, there are lots of other markets in the world. egypt is very bad place to send weapons. >> greta: why would we do that? >> to prop up the egyptian government. >> greta: why would we do that? we have hillary clinton on the topic, is it money or political? >> originally we were doing it because the agreement was reached under mubarak when he was dictator and part of a long term relationship with egypt which had been very supportive of israel. now it's a different world and i suspect our bureaucracy hasn't caught up with reality. there is no other plausible --. >> greta: egypt is not being threatened by any neighbor. israel is not -- >> you got deserts to the west, deserts to the west and east. >> they want to brag and say, we have f-16s and tanks or they want to use them against somebody. >> they h
israel for airstrike inside syria wednesday. syria says israel hit a research facility. conor powell is sorting through things in jerusalem. >> syria's bloody civil war could be on the brink of expanding beyond the borders. as assad regime vowed to retaliation on airstrike on weapons convoy inside syria. u.s. officials confirm the strike on the convoy which was believed to be carrying sophisticated russian made fa-17. surface-to-air missiles from syria to t hezbollah fighters in lebanon. world leaders have long feared that the chaos of the syrian civil war would lead to transfer of weapons to extremist groups. syria denied weapons and claimed that israeli jets attacked a military facility outside damascus. syria's ally iran said there would be repercussions for israel. russia called the strike unjustified attack. >> translator: this is a serious breach. this is unacceptable action against >> reporter: the white house has not publicly commented on the attack but the pentagon officials tell fox news the u.s. was given a heads up from israel. despite the saber rattling, so far, syria an
about the issue of israel and iran and some of his more controversial statements in the past about that. that's been a definite part of the back and forth we've seen. >> briefly, let me ask you on that score because of israel's strike into syria. questions about what the targeting was. it's now been condemned. the secretary general, at least at the united nations, saying that he has grave concerns. i shouldn't use the word condemned, but grave concerns about that israeli air strikes, the first in five years. at this time the united nations does not have details, he says, about the reported incident. what are they saying over there at the pentagon? we've also been briefed today that the vice president when he goes to the munich security conference this weekend is going to meet with the syrian envoy from the united nations, brahimi and will meet with the russian foreign minister and with the syrian national council. >> so far out of this building, while they're keeping many of the details close to the vest, we're not hearing any kind of condemnation, criticism, any negative response. in f
of 2012, my conversations with world leaders. the question was do you believe that israel -- >> i will get to that answer please, don't be in such a very. >> you trust ahmadinejad? >> not on this at all. >> headline makers. >> this is more important than any election. >> if the president did know what happened, he should have. >> i was the perfect candidate for america. >> what if mitt romney isn't the best person? >> the idea that somehow making a business profitable is different than helping people is really a foreign idea. >> and more. >> it is ridiculously easy for someone to purchase a gun. >> do you think homosexuality is a san? >> i think it -- it is a natural. >> could you wake up this morning and have a quick, you know? >> what day is it. >> the newsmakers starts now. good evening. one of the great things about my job is i get to sit down with movers and shakers, men and women in the biggest stories of the year. newsmakers, celebrities, and people never expected to find themselves in a spot like. they are all utterly fascinating. tonight you'll hear from some of my favorite guests
, but the proxy americans look at when it comes to the middle east is israel, when it comes the dealing with iran, with israel, with the broader region. hillary clinton holds the record for the most countries visited at 112. israel, the least visits from any secretary of state since rogers. henry kissinger, 36 times for israel. is this significant? >> well, i mean, she was very energetic. i don't know if she gets frequent flyer miles for all of the miles she logged. that is her job as chief diplomat. >> sadly probably the one perk she does not get. >> right, but the fact is our relationship with israel hasn't been the best. so i don't know if you can directly equate that. anne marie served in the administration. but under the obama administration, relations with israel have been very tough. they may have reached a bottom and mare they're on an uprise, but once again, i think this comes down to president obama's policy. remember, she's the secretary of state. she implements the president's agenda, and i think a lot of the problems out there, i think, were president obama's vision. i think i may be
about israel. in 2006 he gave an interview tomorrow toer middle east envoy aaron david miller. hagel said the following. >> the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up there. i'm a united states senator. i'm a united states senator. >> reporter: hagel favors direct talks with iran and as well as hamas. and he was one of two senators to vote against sanctioning iran. >> he consistently advocated weakness with respect to our enemies, with respect to the nation of iran. he has opposed sanctions over and over again and the job of the secretary of defense is to be a serious, credible strength and deterrent and, unfortunately i think weakness in a secretary of defense invites could not flick because bulllies don't respect weakness. >> reporter: his defenders point out that chuck hagel valiantly in vietnam. he received two purple hearts there. knows what war is all about but his critics pipt out that was against the surge in iraq. he called it the biggest foreign policy mistake. he warned it would be the biggest foreign policy mistake since vietnam. obviously the surge turned out differ
big questions about his commitment to supporting our principal ally namely the state of israel. >> talking about chuck hagel. his comments about israel and about iran and hamas, one of hagel's supporters we quoted on friday, steve clemens was on our show today, quote, there seems to be an effort by israel and supporters over and over to continue to run resolutions to say, how much do you love me america? do you love me today, do you love me tomorrow and do you love me again. i am supportive of israel but i'm not going to zero game between israel and neighbors, but also have vital national security relationships with the united states let's bring in our panel. steve hayes, juan williams and charles krauthammer. steve? >> i think the quote you read is offensive. its clownish view of what people have been arguing both with respect to protecting national security but the threat that iranian poses to the united states of america. i think one of the areas in which hagel has shown himself to be president obama's left, and he has in a variety of different places, is the question of ira
unilateral sanctions against iran. and what some on the hill perceive as a lack of support for israel. >> hagel's record is very, very troubling on the nation of israel. he has not been a friend to israel. >> reporter: hagel and the white house say these are misperceptions. with hagel telling his hometown paper today, he has unequivocal, total support for israel. but he still has a lot of convincing to do on capitol hill. his confirmation is far from guaranteed and the chorus against his nomination seems to be getting louder, despite the best efforts of the white house. diane? >> all right, thank you so much, martha. and as you know, the president's other big pick today was for the man he wants to lead the cia. his white house terrorism adviser, john brennan, whose work ethic is legend. in fact, the president hailed him for standing watch over the nation and teased him about it. >> it was in the summer, august, he's in full suit and tie. and one of the reporters asked him, "don't you ever get any down time?" and john said, "i don't do down time." he's not even smiling now. >> and ther
involving israel. >> can we get something straight about the secretary of defense. he doesn't make policy or foreign policy. and you have these nuts complaining about what they think chuck haegle might think about israel which the president of the it's is never going to ask him about. what he does is implement the president of the united states policy. his orders. get us out of iraq. yeah. >> they are acting like it would be the defense secretary that would decide whether or not we would go to war or not. it comes down to the same thing. they can't accept that he beat his republican opponent twice in a row. they want to make the choices for him. >> there is nothing funnier than pretending that there is nothing more than one degree of difference on israel between the two parties ever. >> right. there is no difference for the record, the officials have said that security cooperation has never been closer between the united states and israel than under barack obama the policy is the same. recall though that everybody on the hill is raising money all the time. if they think they can raise mon
attack on israel. hagel said the u.s. is should talk to hamas. he opposed declaring hezbollah a terrorist organization and also said this is the quote the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here. senator ayotte, how troubled are you by the hagel nomination? >> let me say this i'm very he troubled. i think that the hearings on this nomination are going to be consequential. i have not made up my mind but here s where we are. you put up his prior positions. it makes me wonder and perplexes me why the president nominated senator hagel. one of the things that troubles me that you didn't put up s also the reaction of iran. one of the greatest threats that we face is that iran acquiring a nuclear weapon. some of the prior statements seem to suggest that he thinks we could contain iran. well, that is against 99 senators we recently voted and richard blumenthal is a great supporter of that that our policy cannot be to contain a nuclear armed iran. iran this week kind of reacted favorably some what. some statements favorable to the nomination. they said they were hopeful that with his nomi
's the question about whether he's anti-israel or anti-semitic. that's preposterous. i haven't seen anything he's done with israel, he speaks some hard truths and says things that people think but don't say about what's going on in israel. >> josh, let's bring you in. the article is fantastic. you lay out the groups that would likely have strong opposition. i want to play what joe scarborough said this morning picking up on the comments that chuck hagel is outside the mainstream. >> this is being said, by the way, of a war hero. >> right. >> of a -- this is important. a war hero with shrapnel around with him. this is a guy. we know him from many different things but runs the atlantic council which is about as mainstream an organization as you will get in foreign policy. anybody out there wants to say that chuck hagel is outside the mainstream of foreign policy, i suggest they turn the mirror around on them. >> so josh, in your article as i said you pointed out some of these organizations who will come out and try to pressure lawmakers. joe says i suggest they turn the mirror back on themselves.
organizations. saying iran is a state sponsor of terrorism. i have always said i'm a supporter of israel. and some cases, i have said i'm a strong supporter of israel. i have never voted in -- against israel ever in the 12 years i was in the senate. >> committee deserves your judgment as to whether you were right or wrong about the surge. >> i'll explain why i made those comments. >> i want to know if you were right or wrong. that's a direct question. i expect a direct answer. >> the surge assisted in the objective but if we review the record a little bit. >> will you please answer the question? were you correct or incorrect -- >> hagel has spent last few weeks meeting one on one with senators and jewish groups to win them over on these exact issues. he is already working out of the pentagon office and will be tasked with winding down the war in afghanistan, emerging threat of iran, somalia and changing u.s. mission after two wars. we start with ernesto lunduno. ernesto, overall, how do you think he did? >> well, he clearly feels that we're or looks uncomfortable if that seat. everybody
of policy. they're going to vote against him on things he said in the past especially on israel. >> you're also the co-payer of the campaign to fix the debt. that's a next thing that's racing down the line there in washington, d.c. talking about the debt ceiling. and just earlier we were -- had the opportunity on "the daily rundown" to talk -- or kmuz me. david gregory had the chance over the weekend to speak with mitch mcconnell about shutting down the government. i just want to play for everyone exactly what he had to say. >> would you rule out a government shutdown to achieve your goals? >> what i think we ought to do is to encourage the president to actually be president. address the single biggest -- >> i understand that. my question is would you rule out a government shutdown? >> i know what your question is. what i'm telling you is i haven't given up on the president stepping up to the plate. >> mitch mcconnell seeming a little defiant of that question there. obviously we've lived through this before knowing they're willing to push us to the brink of shutdown and put the country
was in the senate, about israel. in a 2006 interview with former middle east convoy david miller, hagel said the following: >> i'm a united states senator. i'm a united states senator. [inaudible] >> hagel favored direct talks with iran and is one of two senators to vote against sanctioning iran. members of the senate armed services committee are questioning the president's choice. >> hagel, if confirmed to be secretary of defense, would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense toward the state of israel in our nation's history. not only has he said you should directly negotiate with iran, sanctions won't work, that israel must negotiate with hamas, an organization, terrorist group that lobbed thousands of rockets into israel. >> his defenders point to his two purple hearts in vietnam. >> hagel is a tremendous patriot and statesman, served incredibly in vietnam, served this country as a united states senator. he hasn't had a chance to speak for himself. why all the prejudging, i don't know. >> the senate officially rejected nine cabinet nominations since 1834. the last cabinet nominee r

groups? yes. should israel be forced to negotiate with them if they don't recognize israel's right to exist, if they don't renounce violence? no, absolutely. third, sanctions. do you support increased sanctions? would you support unilateral sanctions? yes. there were differences between those statements then and now. he said they were five, six, seven years ago. the world has changed. even george bush didn't have a regime against iran at that point in time. i told him i was going to make these remarks public. and he said, go right ahead because i'm going to say the same thing at the hearings. at those hearings, he'll allay the concerns of the people. it is sort of interesting, david, one final point. neither aipac or the anti-d anti-defamation league or any of the groups have come out against hagel, and most of the opposition comes to be coming from the political hard right. >> we will leave it there. you spend your morning with cruz, and then you get to hang out with beyonce as chair of the inaugural committee. working hard. >> kelly clarkson. i love her. >> david, let me point ou
, if confirmed to be secretary of defense would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense towards israel in our nation's history. he said you should negotiate with iran, sanctions won't work, that israel must negotiate with hamas, he has long cut his ties with the republican party. this is an in-your-face nomination by the president, to those of us that support. >> he means they have this to say about the conservative movement, america, the next chapter. chuck hagel writes, so why did we invade iraq? i believe it is the triumph, arrogance and incompetent that took america into this war of choice. chuck hagel, it should be said did not begin his career as a foreign policy apostate, in 2002, he voted for the iraq war. he wanted to tear up the missile treaty we have with russia to build a missile defense shield, and put boots on the ground in kosovo, which was at the edge of the extreme hawkishness. like many in the country, though relatively few in the congress, hagel was changed about the iraq war, he became a cautious critic and ended as an angry opponent. he ended a changed man or at le
's commitment to israel or his commitment to iranian sanctions. i think in a lot of ways the republican critique of his nomination comes sort of as a general critique of his position when he came out after having voted originally for the iraq war and also just an ally of the president. in a lot of ways for the republicans this has been one of another proxy battles with president obama. it is as much about the feelings about him as their feelings about chuck hagel. >> those feelings come from the left as you were talking about. >> i am not comfortable yet. i want to ask him questions about those two issues. >> democratic senator richard blumenthal with that statement there. as you were writing you said as chuck schumer goes so goes hagel. >> that's right. chuck schumer is probably the most important voice in this debate on the democratic side right now. really the only way that chuck hagel doesn't get confirmed right now is if democratic senators come out in opposition to him. there is going to be a balk of republican senators who will vote against hagel for the reasons you mention. >> do you thi

of israel in our nation's history. he has long severed his ties with the republican party. this is an in-your-face nomination by the president to all of white house are supportive of israel. i don't know what his management experience is regarding the pentagon, little if any. so i think it's an incredibly controversial choice. and it looks like the second term of barack obama is going to be an in-your-face term. >> well, senator hagel is a straight talker from the midwest. he'll give you an unvarnished opinion, and very outspoken. but he has stated his unequivocal total support for israel, saying critics have completely distorted his record. graham predicted other republicans would have a hard time with hagel's nomination. and it just makes you wonder what is really behind all this. senator graham complained that hagel had cut ties with the republican party. but obviously president obama isn't under any requirement to nominate anybody from any party, especially the republicans in the first place. maybe republicans don't like the fact that hagel won't be so eager to get us into another co
